Rocky Mountain baseball is getting some national attention for its 2017 season that ended in a Class 5A championship.

The Lobos were ranked 26th in the final Baseball America national rankings of the season, and 146th in the final MaxPreps computer rankings. They were the only Colorado ranked that highly.

Rocky Mountain won its sixth championship after beating Broomfield in May. That number is the seventh-most in state history, and second among 5A programs.

After the season, the Lobos then had two alums, Carl Stajduhar and Tyler Stevens, selected in the MLB Draft.
